The fun and simple problem-solving guide that took Japan by storm Ken Watanabe originally wrote Problem Solving 101 for Japanese schoolchildren. His goal was to help shift the focus in Japanese education from memorization to critical thinking, by adapting some of the techniques he had learned as an elite McKinsey consultant. He was amazed to discover that adults were hungry for his fun and easy guide to problem solving and decision making. The book became a surprise Japanese bestseller, with more than 370,000 in print after six months. Now American businesspeople can also use it to master some powerful skills. Watanabe uses sample scenarios to illustrate his techniques, which include logic trees and matrixes. A rock band figures out how to drive up concert attendance. An aspiring animator budgets for a new computer purchase. Students decide which high school they will attend. Illustrated with diagrams and quirky drawings, the book is simple enough for a middleschooler to understand but sophisticated enough for business leaders to apply to their most challenging problems.… (mer)

This is a very brief book that translates fancy problem-solving techniques from the world of management consulting into terms that kids (including big 'kids' like me) can understand. As a former business PR consultant, I recognized many of the analysis techniques and was delighted to see them applied to issues like: forming a rock band, buying a computer and choosing a school to attend. It reminded me that applying a little bit of rigorous thought to everyday problems probably isn't a bad idea in many cases. ( )

I wish this book were available to me when I was a kid. It made me realize so many of my decisions were quick, spontaneous and sometimes without any rational altogether.

Adults can also benefit from this book although adults might find it going at a sluggish pace.

But if you are a kid or a have a kid, do read it. It prepares one is going about any problem systematically without the need for unnecessary and rather stressful panic we tend to feel at times.

Any thing in our lives can be thought of as problem and we have to be systematic and disciplined about it if we were to do anything about it.

"Problem solving is easy when you know how to set a clear goal, figure out how to reach it, and follow through while reviewing your progress and making changes to your plan as necessary."

"Spend less time worrying about things and more time thinking about actions you can take to get closer to your goals, then actually take action."

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

Must read book. I hope there is an adult version that discusses case studies of real world problems one faces commonly. ( )

Awesome book! Pointless reading 200 page self-help books about changing, motivation etc; when this is all you need. All those things are problems and this book gives you step by step guide on how to solve problems. ( )

Faz jus ao seu título original: Problem Solving 101. Elementar, muito introdutório, com abordagens simples de ferramentas como as árvores lógicas, árvores de decisão e pirâmide de hipóteses e ainda sobre o oesboço de planos para resolução de problemas. Apenas uma leitura interessante mas que, pelo menos para mim, nada trouxe de substancialmente novo.

Lamenta-se a *péssima* primeira edição portuguesa, sendo a editora Casa das Letras responsável por um trabalho pouco cuidado e com gralhas quase infantis. Até hoje estou à espera de uma resposta sobre as lamentáveis falhas que esta edição tem. Sinceramente, evitem comprar esta primeira edição portuguesa. ( )
